charged three more people over the deep water horizon accident. this from environment and energy news. the justice department charged three workers involved in the deepwater horizon with various criminal violations. dd go down to amarillo, texas, merlin is waiting on the independent line. you're on the "washington journal." caller: i was just wondering how much b.p. has actually made cleaning up the spill? host: not a stat i have for you right now, merlin. i can tell you b.p. was reporting profits in the fourth quarter of 2010 after the spill occurred. profits of about $5.5 billion. the spill occurred in the summer of that year. this according to b.p.'s website. in the third quarter of 2010, b.p.'s profits were about $5 billion. in the fourth quarter of 2011, $7.6 billion in profits. caller: does anybody think that they might have did it on purpose? host: why would you think that, merlin? caller: well, because i heard that the night right before the spill they pulled out their stocks in a lot of, you know, some of the money that they had out there, they pulled out -- host: where are y
i think-- >> the energy and dynamic-- >> that's their tension. it's a dilemma. >> but if the energy and dynamism can move towards reform, great. i think there's a tension in the republican base-- you said they got a shock. but it's unclear whether the shock is i need to change or i was sent to stop this guy obama from raising taxes and doing terrible things to the country. that's unresolved. >> schieffer: let me ask you something, dee dee. there are going to have to be some changees, i would think, in the administration and in the democratic party. after all, the president has had four years to try to break this deadlock and he hasn't been able to do it yet. i'm not saying it's all his fault. isn't he going to have to give a little here? >> no question. and he said i'm willing to compromise, i'm willing to listen, and i'm willing to entertain new ideas. the truth, though, is the president has the upper hand right now. not only was he re-elected by a pretty convincing electorate. he also picked up-- we picked up seats in the house and senate. and with the fiscal-- and 60% of american
to drugs made by his company. congressman cliff stearns chairs the energy and commerce subcommittee that's investigating. >> i have the right to say there's a debacle here, there's malfeasance, somebody's culpable, come to me and explain why, 32 americans have died, 450 are in the hospital. tell me what happened. >> reporter: actually, stearns expects cadden to remain silent and take the fifth. >> there was clear evidence that the quality control was terrible at new england compounding center and he was doing nothing about it. so for some reason he was camouflaging and trying to indicate to the f.d.a. that there's no problem. >> reporter: is barry cadden a liar? >> i think obviously he was shading the truth. >> reporter: stearns plans to examine an incident in september of 2004 when cadden was asked by an f.d.a. investigator if n.e.c.c. had trypan blue in stock a non-f.d.a. approved product. cadden said no, according to the investigator, who then reported finding 189 vials of it on site. >> so i think the f.d.a. has a lot to explain here because at this point all of us are just aghast at
energy sector. the american wind energy industry is in jeopardy. the production tax credit will end december 31, 2012. it must be extended or else 30,000 jobs will be lost and 450 manufacturing businesses will close. two additional measures must also be considered. first, we could apply the master limited partnership and the real estate investment tax programs to the green energy sector and thereby bring significant financing opportunities along with the production tax credit. i yield back my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back. the chair recognizes the gentlewoman from tennessee, mrs. black, for five minutes. mrs. black: thank you, mr. speaker. while the president returned from the campaign trail last week with a slightly more conciliatory tone, his insistence on a year end tax hike on small businesses is unchanged, and frankly that is completely unacceptable. it is unacceptable for more than 23 million americans struggling for work right now. it's unacceptable for millions of middle-class americans struggling to support their families with rising gas prices an
, the energy industry. all of which has constituencies behind them and are difficult to address. >> part of the president's answer to that is to not make the distinction between the corporate and the unincorporated business and raise taxes on what one of the speakers described as passed through entities. large partnerships. and that might have otherwise been corporations. >> i think there is no doubt that the corporate income tax in particular is a rickety structure in need of reform. coming about because we are in a world in which capital is increasingly mobile but we have this boundary around the corporate income tax in based on a national boundary and there is just tension contained in that phenomenon. there is dramatically different perspectives about where to move. the republican party seems much more interested in a territorial system where you get past on the profits that accrue in the united states. democrats are worried that creates even larger incentives for transfer pricing and for locating your profits overseas. and thereby escaping that tax. that is a fundamental divide. in
of the inter-american dialogue, and we talked about opportunities in the areas of trade and energy and other global affairs that really should be taken advantage of by the united states moving forward. but we have to -- we emphasize as well there are three issues that were on an old agenda that had not been resolved and stood in the way of more productive relationship between the u.s. and latin america. these issues were drugs, cuba, and immigration. the first two issues were important at the summit of the americas. the report was released right before the summit of the americas. the first two issues were raised at the summit. the presidents gave a mandate to the organization of american states to study the drug issue. and also the president made it clear there would not be another summit or unlikely another summit unless there was cuban participation in the summit. those issues certain were prominent. i think the election results had interesting implications for all three of these. perhaps the most important is the last one, immigration, which was not on the summit agenda. i think it has ra
,000. it is a luxury car. there is all kinds of like cool expensive add ins you can put in to make it more energy efficient. brings me to another energy efficiency story front page of "the journal" yesterday. the international energy agency said by the year 2020 the u.s. is going to overtake saudi arabia as the world's largest oil producer. >> that jumped off the page. >> i know. we're finding shale gas, we're getting shale oil. the ways we're finding, the technology advances of this country sh the ways we're finding energy are new and they are really working at this point. en that would take the united states above -- a bigger oil producer than saudi arabia by 2020. that is the forecast. gas is the light blue. oil is the dark blue. >> cool. >> there you go. so speaking of energy -- >> thank you so much. >>> next on "early start," new details on the general petraeus scandal. could it lead to the down fall of another general, the current top commander in afghanistan? he tries to end a war. we're going to be live at the pentagon. i mean if you're leaving the house right now, watch us any time on yo
knowledge, and expertise in energy. in energy we have created 1 billion pounds for capture in storage, one of the key technologies of the future. we created the world's first green investment bank. we're pioneering a new incentive for heat systems in people's homes, and we are putting in place a robust financial framework to incentivize renewable electricity. as a result, more than 12 billion pounds has been committed to into renewable projects in the u.k. and the past 18 months alone with the potential to support around 20,000 new jobs. we've also created new incentives to squeeze more oil and gas out of the north sea, including from the marginal fields. when we see opportunity, we must go for it. look at the way we of got behind tech city right here in london. two years ago there were around 200 digital companies. today there are 1200. with major tech companies like amazon and facebook setting up developer centers, this is now becoming the fastest-growing technology cluster anywhere in the world. we will be publishing new strategies for aerospace and ameritech, alongside it clear, offsho
. talk about energy independence. there should be an american energy independence bill and, for example, the renewable industry desperately needs the extension of the production tax credit. if they don't get it they're dead. they literally are dead. they need that. we should be doing everything we can to promote renewables. we're not going to get that from the republicans in congress unless we give them the keystone pipeline. here's the environmental base -- >> forsaking -- >> hates the keystone pipeline but the reality of it is, that's the type of horse trading that has to go on when you don't have leverage that you have on -- you have leverage on immigration because 71/29. republicans can read the 71/29. >> it's not even leverage. >> i would be curious to know your thoughts on this. the president i think is really a centrist and i think -- i won't say has disdain for the ultraleft wing of the democratic party but is, you know -- will give up their priorities to make a grandeur bargain on a number of things. i think immigration will be a really interesting piece. i think that that's al
